A Golden Day in Hindu history – A galaxy of Hindu saints of all sects Join hands to launch Dharma Raksha Manch – Urge Hindus to “Fight terrorism unitedly”

A view of a section of the galaxy of Hindu saints who addressed the massive 150,000 strong Dharma Raksha Rally in Mumbai on January 29

A sea of humanity, over 150,000 strong, converged on the Somaya Hospital grounds in Mumbai’s North
Eastern suburb of Sion in Mumbai, on January 29, to witness modern Hindu history in the making. A galaxy of Hindu saints, religious and spiritual leaders, and social workers from all over the country, from all sections and sects of this over 5000 year old civilization came together on one platform to launch the Dharma Raksha Manch. This memorable event took place in the background of the lengthening jihadi shadows and the creeping clandestine, at times open Christianization of huge sections of our country’s Hindu population, sly, surreptitious sneaking in of decadent western values that are undermining the very foundations of our ages old spiritual, cultural and civilizational heritage and are threatening our very freedom. Presiding over the event, HH Asarambapu Maharaj declared that terrorism should be fought both within and outside the country. Asaram Bapu said, “must be brought up in a socially and culturally healthy way, and not be sent to schools that He said that forces such as Christian missionaries and other believe in religious conversions”. vested interests inimical to the country have conspired to defame our holy saints through false propaganda, lies and denigration. Shri Asaram Bapu also urged for the social and Notable among those present on the stage were VHP economic upliftment of the havepresident Shri Ashok Singhal, Sadhvi Ritambhara, nots in society, and advised the community to inculcate in Swami Hansraj, Rameshwardas Maharaj from itself faith in its spiritual and religious gurus. “Children”, Shri

Venue

Sadhvi Ritambaraji

In the inimitable fashion that is unique to her, Sadhvi Ritambara observed that the country has never before been so vulnerable as it is today. She said that instead of Jawaharlal Nehru, if Mahatma Gandhi made Sardar Patel the Prime Minister, the country would not have been in such a sorry plight.... The Sadhvi observed that whenever the Motherland has found itself in a crisis, saints and seers have risen up in its defense. She also gave a piece of her mind to the media asking it to be more professional and unbiased. “We have a dream of a United India and we will not rest unless we realize it” declared the Sadhvi. While Akahda Parishad’s Gyandas Maharaj cautioned the government not to be sympathetic to the perpetrators of terror, its General Secretary urged the media to be bipartisan and professional, Dharmagiri Maharaj deplored the double standards of the Muslims who while rejecting a common civil code in respect of personal laws and sticking to the shariat for the same, pointed out that they do not show the same partiality in respect of application of shariat laws for penal offences. He wondered when even Muslim countries have a common penal and civil code, why India should have a separate civil code for Muslims based on the shariat !!

Others who addressed the huge gathering included Swami Chinmayanand ,who said today’s government has damaged self-respect. He was of the opinion that if Afzal Guru had been hanged, the November 26, 2008 incident in Mumbai would not have occurred. He challenged the terrorists to come out of stealth and darkness and face our Jawans in hand-to-hand combat. Addressing the youth, he asked them to give their youth to the country so that a spiritual India is resurrected. He said the Preamble of Constitution should have spiritualism rather than secularism. Tanpure Maharaj of Varkari Sampraday said that Shivaji’s Maharashtra cannot allow terrorism. And for this, he said, we should all come together, overcoming the differences of caste and creed and linguistic divisions.

Padma Vibhushan for Catholic Nun Nirmala – None for any Hindu Saint
The Italian Catholic Antonia Maino a.k.a. Sonia Gandhi piloted sickular UPA government has conferred the nation’s second highest honour, the Padma Vibhushan, on Catholic nun NIrmala. Nirmala who? Successor to the Polish nun Mother Theresa, recently declared saint by the Vatican.

No award for Baba Ramdev who has transformed the health of millions across the country. Why? He’s not branded by Rome

Why? Because it is a strictly sickular government. It perhaps believes in its maxim, along with that of the mercenary English media, : mercilessly hound Hindu saints and patriotic soldiers, cast aspersions on brave martyrs like Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, raise mischievous questions about the death of Hemant Kaarkare, keep alive terrorists like Afzal Guru who have been sentenced to death, allow Quattrochi to escape with his loot, turn a Nelson’s eye to large scale conversions by missionaries and go soft on terror to keep its vote bank intact. Aren’t there Hindu holy men, known across the world for their spirituality, saintliness and contribution to world welfare. Isn’t the government aware of the excellent work done by Shri Asaram Bapu, Baba Ramdev, Sri Sri Ravishankar? Perhaps not. Because they are Hindus. One

A tip to Samajwadi Party – why don’t you enroll Afzal Guro and Ajmal Kasab Amar and Mulla Mulayam have ensured a good future for Sanjay Dutt, the bollywood actor convicted under the Arms Act relating to the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts. This will boost their Muslim vote bank. Why not give it a further boost by enrolling Afzal Guro and Ajmal Kasab ?

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF DHARMA RAKSHA MANCH
01. Bharat is a spiritual country. Dharma is its means and Culture (Kulaachaar) is its fruit. The world identifies Bharat with these values. But the efforts that are being made to project its identity as a 'secular', i.e., Dharmaless State, is resulting in negative influences on our education, life, traditions and Sanskars. We would never accept this perverted approach and would definitely frustrate it. "Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah" (Uphold Dharma, Dharma will protect you) is our basic idea. Therefore, we must declare Bharat a spiritual land and work to maintain its spiritual identity unscathed. 02. DRM shall protect, preserve and promote our country's cultural basics, national self-esteem, certitude and faith such as our Dharmasthans (places of pilgrimage), places of worship, Teertha & Parva (festivals), Acharya (Sadhu-Sant), Scriptures, Deities, ways of worship, Avatars (Incarnations) and icons of faith. 03. DRM shall pave the way for construction of a grand temple at the birthplace of Lord Sri Ram - the hero of our national self-esteem, culture, civilization and inspiration. 04. DRM shall make necessary efforts to have the Ganga, Gomata (Mother Cow), and Ramsetu declared as icons of our cultural identity and national heritage. 05. DRM shall push for a Common Civil Code in line with the One Nation-One Emblem, and One people-One Law perspective. 06. We are a spiritual country that has its own Dharmic tradition. Any alteration to it or proselytising those that believe in them is clear sedition and we won't ever accept it. 07. Our culture protects and loves those that approach it seeking refuge. Many victimised and tortured faiths of the world took refuge in our country and we have given all of them respect and love; but infiltration is not same as taking refuge. Infiltrating into our territory by harming our "Sarva Bhoota Hitey Rataah" (Love All, Serve All) perspective, with the aim to crush our national self-esteem and violating all the limits of civilised behaviour is a national crime and a declaration of war on us, and it is our national duty to stop it at all costs. 08. Our culture dedicated to the welfare of all life and nature is fully self-contained and prosperous in itself. We are second to none in any way in literature, music, arts and philosophy. Under the guise of globalisation, our pro-family society is being turned into a market-based institution and our values of life are being hit again and again. DRM shall work to awaken the people to the reality of the bad consequences of perverted-culture and guide the society as to the things that it should do and make efforts to end any perverted approach at governmental levels. 09. Bharat has been called the Jagadguru as it was advanced and self-reliant in the field of education. But after independence education has been badly devalued in the name of secularism the influence of which is clearly visible in the life of the present generation. History is being changed, literature is being polluted, undue changes are being effected in text books and those are being made anti-culture and irreverent, that is why DRM has to awaken the whole country to right education and literacy. 10. We are a prosperous nation from the points of view of language, approach to life and living and ways of worship. In the constitution of our society the individual, in spite of being independent in spheres of thought and emotion, is identified with the society and is its live unit. "Unity in Diversity" is our approach to life. "Ekam Sat Vipraa Bahudha Vadanti" (Truth is One, Scholars call it by different names) is our Mantra. That is why, in spite of many castes, languages, sects and schools of thought we have always been one. Mother India speaks many languages, but tell the same thing. This is the truth of our life.

Those people who have been conspiring to divide our social unity on the basis of caste, language, region and some other basis, it is our duty and Dharma to frustrate their designs. We will re-establish the perspective of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" (The whole world is one big family) on earth. 11. "Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah" (Let All be Happy, Healthy and Blessed) and "Ahimsa Paramo Dharmah" (Non-violence is the supreme Dharma) are the eternal perspectives of our popular life. As and when some Ravan went mad and challenged this perspective, then the land of the country gave us a Sita and the skies gave us a Rama. Our approach is constructive. We are celebrators and worshippers of Mother Nature and life. Violence and destruction are not there in our nature nor do we tolerate them, no matter if it is perpetrated by Hiranyakashyap or Hiranyaksha or Shumbha-Nishumbha.
